@SnakeCoils it is not as much heresy as it is just a bad idea! Disregarding the license issue, this would just introduce dozen new big problems while trying to fix what is really just a tiny issue. -As in relatively easy to fix. The problem is simply that I do not do PPC (as in I don't develop/test for it). I normally write code that works on both big- and little-endian architectures, but I still just test on x86/x86-64.

So as I said, it's not really difficult to fix at all, but someone knowledgeable has to spend some time with it (and test it) on PPC. -And I simply have a long todo list already.

(Note: even if no-one steps up to take a look at it, that does not mean I will not review the FPU code at some point in the future. Also, if/when I add support for the softfloat library, the FPU emulation might start work fine again - in softfloat mode - albeit with a speed penalty).

This is about running FS-UAE on PPC Mac's. There's no native PPC instruction handling.
